We currently have 8 teams signed up and a total of 33 walkers, with our biggest team coming from Bond Dickinson, all raising vital funds to support access to advice for all.
Top of the fundraising table is the wonderful Birch & Co team who have so far raised £262! This is a fantastic achievement and has played an important part of making this year’s first ever Walk the Tyne Legal Walk bigger and more exciting than we could ever have imagined.
So far the Walk has raised just under £1000 altogether. This is a great start but we still need everyone to continue fundraising as much as possible to support local advice charities.
The charities supported by the Walk the Tyne Legal Walk help thousands of people every year gain access to justice. These charities are often the last resort for people facing difficult and distressing legal circumstances but without the resources to pay for private legal advice. Without this charitable work many vulnerable people would be left alone to navigate the court and justice system without any advice or support.
We’re proud to have two charities walking with us on Saturday 29 October, Newcastle Law Centre and PSU. Please help us to continue to support the vital work they do in the local community by raising as much as you can at the Walk the Tyne Legal Walk.
It looks set to be a fantastic evening with celebratory fish and chips provided at the finish line.
A big thank you also to our wonderful sponsors Fincan and CILEx who are supporting and promoting our event. As we need sponsorship in order to be able to continue running our legal walk events their support is invaluable and key to continuing the work of the North Eastern Legal Support Trust.
